Shutterfly Saves the Day!

I'm a big fan of digital scrap booking.  I love how flexible and easy it can be, and use my scrap booking software for everything from calendars to track Miss E's reading minutes to building scrapbook pages and birthday party invitations.  I usually design our family Christmas card from scratch, but this year I have just been too busy.  Enter Shutterfly.  Shutterfly has long been a favorite photo printing site.  They have a huge catalog of fun products with very reasonable prices and really great quality.  It took much longer to snap a few quick pictures of the kids than to select and  build our Christmas cards.  I had a lot of fun perusing all the possibilities.  My first thought was to go with a folded card.

I liked this one because I had lots of pictures I wanted to include, and this style allows you to use two more pictures inside.  But, as I browsed the other styles, I found I loved the bold colors of this flat card.

I also liked the option to personalize the caption beneath the pictures. That's unique among this type of card. However, I had my heart set on using black and white pictures, and decided I liked the contrast between them and this gorgeous blue.

This card just looks so bright and cheerful! I really love how it makes my black and white pictures pop. The overall appearance of this choice made my decision easy.
